Book Review: The Miner's Lady
I didn't think that this series could get any better, but I was wrong!!! This third book, The Miner's Lady by Tracie Peterson, was a fabulous end to the series and will not disappoint! This book has it all - romance, murder, mystery, family feuds and forbidden love! The Panetta family and Calarco family have been at odds with each other for generations that span back to Italy. They found themselves living in the same town and working in the same mines. The hatred for each other is still there between the fathers of the families, but can it be resolved. When the youngest of each family fall in love with each other, the families become even more at odds with each other. Chantel Panetta (the oldest sister) and Dante Calarco (the oldest brother) find themselves "helping" the forbidden lovers meet with each other, and, as their paths cross more and more, one wonders if there will be more than one forbidden love. Family feuds are not the only problem in the town. There is a gambling issue as well and the Panetta brothers are suspecting that there are other issues going along with it. When more than one family tragedy strikes both families, can it bring the families together? Tracie Peterson does a wonderful job developing her characters and the plot. You really never know where the story is going to go. I would highly recommend this book and this entire series to anyone.
I have been given this book by Bethany House to review, but the ideas are my own!
